Diploma of Training Design and Development
The Diploma of Training Design and Development (TAE50216) reflects the roles of training developers and instructional designers who are responsible for analysing training needs and designing training solutions and products. This qualification will benefit those who design programs to meet workplace capability requirements or evaluate the effectiveness of training programs. They may have a role in providing guidance and advice to trainers and assessors, promoting innovative practices, such as e-learning, and in researching and incorporating best practice in training and assessment into training programs and products. Therefore, the Diploma of Training Design and Development represents an expression of achievement that reflects the robustness of training design required to maintain high standards desired in the VET workforce. This qualification provides experienced training developers with a pathway to extend their VET careers.

The Learning and Assessment Journey
See the bottom of this page for a detailed description of the Learning and Assessment journey for MRWED Students.
Volume of Learning
MRWED’s decisions about the duration of the delivery of this qualification take into account the candidates’ likelihood of successfully achieving the learning outcomes and ensure that the integrity of the qualification outcomes are maintained. MRWED acknowledges that the amount of training provided by us is only part of the overall volume of learning and relates primarily to formal activities including classes and other extension tasks.
The amount of training allocated for this qualification is based on the prior experience of each participant. Learners who have a lot of relevant prior experience may have the ability to complete the qualification in a shorter timeframe. However, those who are new to the profession will often take a longer time frame to complete and will be supported by our dedicated Learner Success team throughout their journey. Learners should expect a duration between twelve months and 2 years to meet the requirements of TAE50216, which is consistent with the AQF volume of learning indicators for a Diploma qualification.
Our published public schedules represent the instructor-led “contact time” for candidates choosing a fully face-to-face learning pathway. However, additional reading, research, participation in webinars, project work and assessment activities will be required over the duration of their study to successfully complete the qualification.
